Editor Display Modes: Distraction Free and Presentation Mode
The editor can be run in several different display modes:
- Normal mode
- Distraction Free Mode
- Presentation Mode
These modes are primarily controlled via the Control Box at the top left of the Markdown Monster Window:
This is the default configuration which shows the editor with all the toolbars status bars and previewer. This is the most common way most people use the application.
Within the normal mode you can also toggle the previewer using the World icon on the Window control box, or using the alt-v-p.
Distraction free mode removes the menu, toolbar and status bar and optionally lets you maximize the the Window to full screen so you can just focus on the editor.
You can customize how Distraction Free Mode operates by specifying exactly what to hide using a configuration settings in Tools -> Settings:
Each of the keywords specifies corresponds to a UI element to hide except for maximized, which if specified causes the window to maximized.
Presentation mode shows only the previewer for the editor removing everything else from the Markdown Monster Window.
When running on wide monitors it might not be desirable to stretch content across the entire edit area, but rather limit the editor text to a certain text width. You can specify the
maxwidth:970 option to specify a maximum pixel width for the text beyond which the editor content area is padded with whitespace.
This makes for a more manageable editing experience on very wide displays and makes distractionfree mode editing more pleasing and easier text easier to read.
